12:05 pm
position remains positions remain far away my government will always defend the interests of spain if there are no changes we will veto brags that spain ceded control and you brought her to britain more than three hundred years ago but still claims the tiny mediterranean on klav. more details now with our correspondent care my tests in brussels explain what spain wants here. spain has always made clear throughout the breaks in negotiations that they want the issue of gibraltar that tiny bit of great britain right in front of their doorstep they want to have that settled bilaterally so they don't want it to be part of the breaks of negotiations and so in the divorce draft treaty which we have now on the table which currently ministers of the member states are looking at very closely at of the summit. there was a clause in that paper guaranteeing a post bracks if vitol for spain if they were unhappy of how things are going and
12:06 pm
that veto has disappeared that clause has disappeared from the paper spain wants it back in all right so what could actually happen here with that veto could spain actually jeopardize it breaks a deal over gibraltar i don't think they will have a veto if you take a look at that some is that special someone and i checked the regulations here it says a consensus is needed so we're looking at a summit here that will give green light for the approval process it will after the summit it will be the u.k. parliament and so on and weekend parts of the e.u. institutions agreeing to this but the summit will need a unanimous decision and the e.u. so far it was clear throughout the breaks of negotiations unity was key for the e.u. that was part of the negotiation position if not the core of its negotiating position and they will not give this up so a rocky negotiations going on as we speak looking ahead to the summit on sunday care what does happen next it's not just gibraltar but it's also fish which is
12:07 pm
a contentious issue particularly for spain and the netherlands so a number of countries are currently handing in last minute. demands maybe you could call them for potential concessions potential changes but the way things look for me right now we're still heading for that summit on sunday. and care just briefly if you can everyone wondering as to reset main britain is going to be able to push this breaks a deal through parliament is there any question whether the remaining twenty seven e.u. parliaments whether they'll be any difficulties there. while we that's the situation we have now it is currently the ambassadors of the twenty seven remaining e.u. member states who are taking a very close look at divorce paper and at the political declaration which is not legally binding so it's less contentious from from what i can say about this document and but my expectation of the summit and really that is also
12:08 pm
a german chancellor angela merkel has said they want it clarified it had face likely they want to use the summit to rubber stamp it and they don't want to go on the summit on sunday into a lengthy debates and difficult negotiations that is why tough talks are going on right now so that the summit can smoothly rubberstamp it and then the approval process can go on all right did it he's getting in brussels thank you can't. that's mother stories making headlines around the world the spanish prime minister pedro sanchez and cuban a president we get kind of want to expand ties between their two countries the two leaders signed agreements in havana centrists is in cuba for the highest level spanish visit to cuba in more than thirty years. a group of central american migrants have marched to the border crossing in tijuana mexico calling for permission to enter the u.s. president trying to start to close the u.s. border with mexico if authorities quote lose control of the situation. cuba has
12:09 pm
canceled a health care deal with brazil and recalled thousands of doctors working in the country this after brazil's incoming president called the doctors slave labor cuba earns billions by collecting most of the wages of doctors and medical workers it sends to countries like brazil. and crowds in new york braved freezing temperatures for front row seats at the macy's thanksgiving day parade the annual tradition features a broad array of talent everything from high school bands to broadway stars about fifteen million people worldwide break spectra to watch the televised spectacle. in france a report commissioned by president mccall is likely to recommend changes in the law to allow african works of art to be returned to their nations of origin the report follows up on a promise michael made two years ago to return african heritage to africa most of the works were taken during french colonial rule in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. in a paris museum on the banks of the seven
12:10 pm
a palace of african art but the seventy thousand works here have a troubled past many of them were torn from their cultural home during the colonial era. a new report commissioned by french president emmanuel mccall says that france must return the arctic stole. the author has found that as much as ninety five percent of sub-saharan african art is held outside the continent. in between a country with a renowned art legacy france's move is being hailed as a step toward justice. by returning property is not a matter of victory for someone or failure for others because in the end it's not a battle. he needs these assets to strengthen its national economy to provide employment and also for all the cultural heritage managers and curators in this
12:11 pm
country. back in paris some resistance french our dealers are skeptical that museums can or even should return the best collections. it's one of these things that looks like morally on its face give it back to who it belongs well what is a belong to and hasn't been in that country for over a hundred years and you know look france built the whole music to respect these objects to preserve them to show them so it's a tricky thing i mean i'm actually kind of in favor of it but i'd like to see how it gets. completed france's wholesale return of looted african art would be historic and could trigger a response from other european countries with colonial era holdings it was not call himself who launched the initiative but it's unclear if he's prepared to see it through. let's bring in lisa lewis she's following the story for us from paris hi lisa so this is a highly anticipated report it's going to be released this afternoon what can we
12:12 pm
expect. well we know that this report will recommend that if countries make that in mt to france to give back. that was taken during the colonial period between one thousand nine hundred five and one nine hundred sixty from such the herion countries then the government will have to look into it and give these artworks back within five years if there is no receipt that she's that this artwork was required legally obviously this is a non-binding report and it what rick ryan a change in french law because currently french will says that that is owned by the french government is nontransferable so that would need to be changed and i was a people hear some voices are some people are saying you know this is not really the right thing right way to go about this this would be a caricature of history because our colonization wasn't only bad you can say really
12:13 pm
the bad guys they're the good guys we also got lots of good things to these countries that is infrastructure education et cetera and also you know we have a historic role to put preserve and protect these are obviously on the african side people are saying you know it's not you're not in the position to tell us what to do with these things because these outlets are property free and as we heard at least it's unclear if michael will actually see this through out could this also increase pressure on museums and private collectors elsewhere in europe well absolutely i mean not every country has that many immigrants descendants from colonial countries in africa as like france but still there will be a lot of discussion in the u.k. or in germany and france really goes through with this there will be a lot of pressure on these countries to do the same really and what do you think we're going to see from african countries what does this mean for them. it's
12:14 pm
a huge thing for them because when the french or when other countries went into their countries and you know colonized these countries and then took away these are it meant for them that they were taking parts of their cultural heritage cultural history part of their identity and if you look at these countries but also you descendants from these countries here in france for example is a huge debate many many people from the suburbs has been saying you know we want my car we want the president to go through with this because it would mean that we were finally seen in a way on an as on an equal footing because you know by taking away these objects it's like saying you don't have a history your history is with us with france and if france really gets gives back these outlets it means that these countries can finally be proud again of the of the history also say you know we have our own heritage and this is what we're going to show in our own museums now our idea is lisa lewis reporting there for us from
